Mac, Kim, and Carol just returned from The Big Easy last week. They had a great week in New Orleans at the OLC Innovate conference. WOW! What a great event! It was 4 jam-packed days of meeting clients, making presentations, shaking hands, and giving out blinky buttons (our newest piece of swag).
We were honored to have our very own, Dr. Mac Adkins, to be invited as one of the keynotes. He spoke on the topic of communicating learner competencies to companies and was a part of the Keynote Address – Lightning Talk.
Carol Moody, Solutions Consultant, had a room full for her presentation – “Competency Based Education-Ready or Not” where she focused on what’s happening with CBE right now and the challenges it presents. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about CBE and how it can work with financial aid, how to determine credit hours, how to make SIS and LMS work with CBE, and assessment issues as well.
One of the highlights of the conference was when Mac and Carol took a few clients to dinner at the Royal House near the hotel. It’s always such a pleasure to spend one-on-one time with clients to get to know them better. Not only was the food excellent but the company was delightful as well.
OLC does a great job in making sure their events are well planned out with strong content and plenty of networking opportunities. They even managed to throw in some entertainment from a local school. We are already looking forward to the next event – OLC Accelerate in the November. See you in Orlando!Share This:
